    Jail breaking mostly means getting admin or root access to phones or tabs I think

    Facial recognition is typically done by software operating on an image (e.g. OpenCV). It only requires getting an image and processing that image.

    By getting elevated privileges ("jailbreaking"), the user can tap into what may otherwise be a limited, or restricted, resource.

    What are we supposed to use for a Guy Fawkes mask in U.S.A?

    And don't forget to accessorize.

    Seriously, the idea of being ID'd by every Tom, Dick, and crook on the street that has a pair of Google Glasses bothers me. I know that night prowlers sometimes wear hats with IR LEDs on the perimeter to foil night vision cameras. What do we resort to in broad daylight? I see pictures of lots of Asians wearing surgical masks; maybe we all should.

    Face recognition is usually defeated by asymmetry when masks can't be used. Stroke victims with one side distorted, hair styles that cover one side of the face, high contrast makeup on one side confuse the common algorithms that look for measurement points centered on the face to generate a matching probability. Hats or glasses with IR dazzlers also work but will alert operators about a countermeasure.

    Ah yes dont cut ur hairs :)
    Asians actualy do wear masks for hygiene- hiding the face is only secondary if at all.

    Jailbreaking eh? Nice new terminology. They are hiding schduff 4 ur own good. Google pwned me ttly w/ backing up all my SD card hi-res photos to online and eating bandwidth a lot on a wireless plan.

    As well slowing down the tablet down to an ooze.

    After disabling the feature, random crashed increased a big lot.

    OK on FB PPL U DNT KNOW R Friends. Sure. Free hugs eh?

    In addition it regularily asks if u wanna give the info for your marital status.

    It goes like u close that and soon, they ask you again.

    Takao,

    Do yourself a favor, and call it a night. You need to sleep.

    I agree. The increase in text speak and the resulting decrease in clarity is likely caused by a shortage of melanomin.

    I think there's a point there. :confused:

    OK I try not to use "pwned" type speak on the forum.
    Let the google glasses and the jailbreaking be and call it a day.
